Definitely the best massage I have had in ages! Can recommend the Thai massage for something a little different, you will walk away feeling amazing and refreshed. Professional service and all round 5 star!

I saw kirsten for sports massage. As someone who trains a lot it's important for me to keep my body in shape. Kirstens knowledge and skill beats anyone else I've used in the past. Definitely recommended!

I had never tried traditional Thai massage before Kirsten suggested it. It was much better than I ever expected. Would highly recommend to give it a go if you have never tried it before!
